Tort Suit Seeks to Put Klan Out of Business

USA Today has the story of a tort system brought this summer against the second-largest Ku Klux Klan group in America, the Imperial Klans of America.  The suit arose out of the 2006 beating of a Hispanic teenager in Kentucky; the Klan members deny that the group was involved.  The plaintiff is represented by the Southern Poverty Law Center, who says that the goal is to cripple the group and deter future violence; their press release is available here.
